Top Dog Dies--Baby and a Giveaway!


 Hi everyone!!  I'm so excited to share that I'm a guest for Top Dog Dies!  Guess what?  There is a giveaway too.......$50 of exclusive Top Dog Dies!!!  Read more about that at the end of my post.


Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including My Favorite Things, Lawn Fawn, Taylored Expressions. Savvy Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs. Top Dog Dies is also the leading U.S. retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by British designer Stephanie Weightman.

I'm sharing a fabulous steel-rule die called Onesie Card.  I'm a fan of shaped cards......kind of changes up the standard size card.  However, this Onesie Card IS an A2 size so it fits perfectly in an A2 envelope.

I started by cutting an entire white card using the whole die.  Then using only half of the die, I die cut another onesie using pattern paper and adhered to the folded card.  This gives it just a bit more stability.
Tip:  To make this stand up (because it has a rounded bottom), simple trim the back bottom panel at a straight line leaving the front panel still rounded.

There is a Onesie Card Finishers Die set that can be used with this and it includes the most adorable finishing touches you can add to make this Onesie Card come alive.  You can see some little details I've embellished my card with using the dies in this set.  Just look at all the detail in this cute duck......and it even has a die for its wing!

Next, I wanted to show you that you can use the Onesie Card Finishers Die set without using the Onesie Card Die.  I created a small card........3 x 3 1/2 that can be used to attach to a gift bag or as a stand alone card.  I've used the MFT Chevron Border dies to trim the bottom front edge of my card.

Using more of the Onesie Finisher Dies, I die cut several of the word 'baby' and of the teddy bear.  Gluing them together gave them dimension without having to adhere tiny pieces of foam adhesive.  I've added some black Enamel Accents for the eyes and nose.

Here are the Onesie Finisher Dies........look at all the details you can add with these dies!!!
